Testimonials & Feedback

For full Catalogue available or to discuss private commissions and charity projects please just contact me. I pride myself in being able to develop clients’ ideas into new and vibrant artwork.

“I commissioned Steve to do a portrait of the two-tone man from the 80s record label and WOW it was absolutely superb and the detail is top drawer so after that I had a portrait painted of the late great Bill Shankly, and yet again was so true to life (incredible). He always kept me informed of the time scale and how the painting was looking at various stages. Highly recommended.”

Dave Northampton

“I bought one painting from Steve and commissioned another in 2018. I have to say what a talented guy and his work is often admired by visitors. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Really nice to have original artwork and to personally know the man behind the work.”

Stewart Northampton (expat Liverpool)

“Having bought one of Steve’s early works, I commissioned him to do a couple of paintings, based on personal photos, which were to be Christmas presents for very special people.

To say I was pleased with the results is an understatement – they were brilliant and had exactly the right effect when received as gifts. I couldn’t thank Steve enough and it’s great watching how he has further developed his work in the couple of years since.”

Roger Swindon

“I visited Steve in the studio with my family to collect ‘Last Cab Home’, an evocative Liverpool scene and a work now proudly in our home. The work truly captures our city and that atmosphere of strolling our streets late at night. The fact most of the work was by hand and not brush is amazing.”

Les Crosby 

“ ‘Kirkby Chronicles’ captures moments of a childhood in Kirkby which I so fondly remember. Outstanding artwork which is truly amazing, with bold colours, attention to detail, the dedication and
workmanship is phenomenal. I am so grateful that your exceptional talent has brought my happy memories back to life. I am thrilled I get to look at these everyday. I hope you get the success you so rightly deserve and personally I cannot thank you enough.”

Carol Aigburth 

“Having been both an admirer and previous client of Steve’s work for a number of years, I trusted him
fully to produce a significant piece of work, personally commissioned, that carried vast emotional significance, SW6. The final work once completed was purely astonishing, a magnificent statement piece now proudly on display. Steve’s unique style in terms of the people and personalities he paints is a genuine one off. No one else uses his techniques which fully respect the wishes of the client whilst providing uncanny accuracy. A growing talent in the art world. My recommendation is total.”

Paul London 

“Steve undertook a very difficult commission for me. As I said at the time, I knew what I didn’t want but didn’t know what I did want! Steve was incredibly patient and more importantly creative with his ideas. What we ended up with is a marvellous painting which is deeply personal and evokes the memories of our happy trips to Ambonnay and of our dear friend who is no longer with us. Steve captured the essence of the village and the champagne house perfectly. Thank you.”

Rita & Nick Cheshire

“Following the purchase of an original from Steve I asked for a print of a Kirkby based piece. As ever he went one better and re-touched an old print creating a one-off bespoke piece that captures special moments spent with a close friend. Thanks.”

Liz Kirkby

“Steve created a piece for our pub, which continued to support the community through lockdown. We were delighted to purchase the original and generate a charity donation for the Walton Centre. You can see his brilliant artwork on display in our pub.”

Andy & Rachel The Warbreck Orrell Park.

“I was fortunate to be introduced to Steve a couple of months ago by a mutual friend.

I saw some pictures of his work and was very impressed.

I made an appointment to meet him at his studio and went along with my wife and two daughters.

I was totally blown away when I saw the paintings in his studio. The quality is unsalable and there is a story behind each piece.

I was lucky to be able to buy 4 pieces, two for myself and one for each of my daughters.

These now take pride of place in our homes. The work is really exceptional and not only looks great but is, I believe, a valuable investment for the future.

For each painting sold Steve makes a donation to charity which shows the man’s character and his way of helping others in need. Well done Steve and as soon as I find another wall I will be back for more!”
